Ted Raimi to make directing debut with The Seventh Floor

We all know who Ted Raimi is. But for that ONE GUY, let me run down a quick history. Ted Raimi is Sam Raimi's brother. Sam Raimi is, of course, famous for directing THE EVIL DEAD trilogy and the SPIDER-MAN trilogy among much, more more.

Anyhow, now it looks as if the younger Raimi is going to be trying his hand at helming a horror flick with the upcoming psychological film, THE SEVENTH FLOOR.

Broke Horror Fan recently sat down with Raimi and got the first tidbits on THE SEVENTH FLOOR. You can check all the new info out below and then let us know how excited you are to check out Ted Raimi's feature directing debut THE SEVENTH FLOOR, on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!


I’m directing my first feature this year, as a matter of fact. It’s called The Seventh Floor. Veva Entertainment is producing it, and we’re pre-pro now. We don’t start shooting until September, at the moment. It’s a thriller. I can’t tell you what it’s about, but it’s psychological horror. I’m very excited about that. It’s not traditional horror; there’s no monsters or zombies or anything like that. It’s more in your head.

Ted Raimi on his influences:

For this one, Roman Polanski and Dario Argento. Both of those guys are incredibly influential; Roman Polanski for his ability to build tension where there seemingly is none, and Dario Argento for his filmmaking style and the speed at which the action happens. It’s unbelievable. I’ve studied them to get a sense of it. I’m also heavily inspired by David Cronenberg. He for the same reason that I like Polanski. He’s able to create such amazing moments where there is no action, but you sense a palpable tension.

THE SEVENTH FLOOR is currently in pre-production and is set to begin filming this September. We'll keep you up to date when we hear more!

Extra Tidbit: Ted Raimi played Possessed Henrietta (again) in ASH VS EVIL DEAD season 2.
